This book was everything! I loved the first book, and this one certainly did not disappoint.
I do have to say, the beginning was a little slow. There are a few new characters to introduce, so it took a little bit to get to know them and their personalities. I also couldn’t really tell how much time had passed between books. From one character’s POV, it seemed immediate, but from others’, it seemed like it could have been some days or weeks.
The first part of this book was especially funny! There was some morbid humor and I wasn’t expecting it, which made it even funnier.
This book really is about the characters learning about their world. The points of views are split up into a few different groups and each group is kind of discovering things that were previously unknown to them. There are a ton of discoveries that were just absolutely wild! This world is weird and I’ve never read anything like it before. This series is definitely fantasy, but it does kind of cross over into sci-fi a bit as well.
I absolutely adore most of the characters in this series! I just want to wrap them in a blanket and give them hot cocoa. They are all so different from each other and I love seeing their relationships with each other grow.
I’m really looking forward to the last book in this trilogy! The ending of this book definitely set up at least one plotline that is going to be addressed (which I am very excited to see how it will play out) and there is still a lot that needs to be resolved. I have absolutely no idea how it’s going to end because this series keeps surprising me, in the very best way.
